Description:
This is a fresh install.  The installer crashes either (1) when using the .msi file and clicking "next" after selecting "Developer" products to install, or (2) when running MySqlInstaller.exe directly and clicking on "Add" to add products.  Exception data is below (edited to get <8k):

...

Thank you for the bug report. Windows XP isn't more supported.
